Cell Phones Allowed on DC Trip, Please Read Important Info Included

Cell phones are not only allowed for this trip they are recommended. We want the scouts & adults to use the resources that are out there to best grasp all DC has to offer. We are asking that everyone downloads the following apps:

ANC Explorer (Arlington app)

Smithsonian Mobile

NPS National Mall

Friday night when we get to the hotel, we will have a meeting where we will discuss what we will do on Saturday (Museums vs. monuments, or a combination of both), so please download these apps now and review. Also make sure your scouts download as well if they don’t check the website.

We want to make it very clear, allowing phones is so scouts can take pictures and use the suggested apps. It is NOT to play games, go on Snapchat, instagram, etc. We expect parents to remind scouts of this before they go.

Not going to DC? Please help out Phillip

Due to an overwhelming response to the Toy Drive, I need to add a day to my Eagle Scout Project. A ton of viable, plastic toy donations came in at the last minute (and keep coming!). I’d greatly appreciate if anyone who is not going on the Washington trip can come to trinity on Friday night at 7 pm. I think we will be there until 10 pm. Parents, Committee members, friends and family are also welcome, there is that much stuff. Please come and help as it will benefit a lot of children in need.
Thanks in advance for your support,
Phillip

17 boys signed up between Friday & yesterday. We currently only have 1 slot left for youth.

We are taking a deposit for said slot (youth only, not open to adults yet), on a first come first serve basis. So please know that it is likely that registration for this trip will be closed shortly.

After which point we will have a wait-list, in case anyone going has an issue and can’t attend.

Any questions direct to Mike.

 

Need Help ASAP

****POSITION FILLED*******

Through a work contact I have found out that there are 8-10 large trays of food that need to be donated somewhere, as the restaurant they are coming from has to close for a week due to a gas leak. Rein will be able to put the food to good use for the people at the soup kitchen he runs. But he will not be able to pick the food up, & the restaurant needs it picked up by mid-day the latest tomorrow.

I am told it should fit in the back of any car. It is 8-10 trays, and will need to be picked up on the Upper West Side and dropped off at the church (trinity).

Who can help us find this food a home in the bellies of the needy?

Email Mike if you can do this.
